French bisque "Paris Bebe" by Danel & Cie. Circa 1890. Anatole Danel had been an employee at the Jumeau firm until resigning and forming his own firm which specialized in a bebe that was a near copy of the Jumeau. Jumeau sued and won, limiting the production of Danel & Cie bebes to only two years,and resulting in their rarity today.
Condition: generally excellent.
Marks: Paris-Bebe Tete Depose 7 (red stamp) 7 (incised).
Emile Jumeau, his trademarked model "Paris Bebe" with distinctive facial modeling, circa 1892.
